Supply Preaching

Supply preachers play an invaluable role for many congregations. When a congregation’s preacher needs to be away, the synod office can provide a list of preachers to call on to help! The synod office also assists congregations looking for long-term supply coverage when needed.


Interim Ministry

Interim pastors serve congregations as they transition to new pastoral leadership or a new season of the congregation (such as shared ministry). Intentional interims, with specialized training, are appointed when there is a need to attend to conflict or move a congregation through a major change. Interims are appointed by the bishop.
